The Bottom Line Despite a few shortcomings, the Synology DiskStation DS411slim makes a worthy upgrade from its processor, the best-of-its-time DS409slim. Synology DiskStation DS412+ makes an excellent NAS server for advanced home and small-office networks. The Synology DiskStation DS1513+ is easily one of the best multiple-bay NAS servers to date, performing superbly both as an advanced storage server and as the central host for a long list of home entertainment and business uses. For a low-cost entry-level network storage device, the WD My Cloud is very impressive both in performance and features, making it one of the best deals for home users. The Synology DiskStation DS213Air is a great network storage device for home users, especially those who also want to extend their Wi-Fi network.
